opioid abuse has really taken toll across the nation. here locally leaders from the district v have a and maryland have been working together to find ways to combat the crisis. and some say understanding the word addiction is really the first step. national geographic did a cover story on the science of addiction in its recent september issue. the article says, drug use can change the wiring in an addict's brain but researchers are working on ways to actually counter that. so joining us now from new york is national geographic writer fran smith author of "the science of addiction" article. thank you so much for being with us this morning, mrs. smith. >> thank you very much for having me. >> you know, i feel like addiction being a disease is not just a moral failing, you know, it's something that scientists have been saying for while. but in this cover story, is it that there is new gro ground-breaking research that's been done to help better prove
7:33 am
people? >> yes, there's been a ton of research that shows that addiction really associated with lots and lots of changes in the brain. it causes the brain to really focus attention on this one thing, this object of desire and really blot out other things of value, family, relationships, career, and at the same time it causes the front parts of the brain, the frontal regions to really -- the parts of the brain that are responsible for exercising judgment, assessing risk, those parts are really compromised. so this whole picture has really convinced lots and lots of people that addiction is a chronic relapsing brain dis disorder. >> you know, it's intereting. it's hard to convince people of that and sometimes i think it's even hard to convince the people that are abusing that have the addiction that that it actually is a disease. but can you talk specifically because the article goes in
7:34 am
addiction highjacks the brain and physically changes the wiring. >> right. highjacks is a word that we hear a lot in addiction research, and what that means is, it rollie takes over the fundamental mechanisms that drive desire. the fundamental mechanism that is control desire. so the brain is completely out of balance in that sense, and -- and it's something that will power is not -- it's very hard to overcome that kind of thing, and even people who quit and who go through recovery and struggle with that often relapse even long after the addictive substance is out of their system so there's something very fundamental in the brain that is affected by addiction. >> i find it fascinate wagon you have found but i found it equally as intriguing w
7:35 am
article when they were talking about the treatments, once we have a disease we then want a cure fort disease and there's a lot of new things, be it different medicines or this trance cranial magnetic stimulator, you know, where someone literally goes doctor's office and, you know, they're brain gets hooked up to something rewire it and treat at diction. >> yes, we tell amazing story about a patient who tried that treatment, and it really -- it's electric pulses to the brain, and it's painless. it's an experimental treatment. it's yet to be proven but this patient that we write about in the article had struggled with cocaine for years, recovery, relapse, recovery, relapse, and went through this treatment and is, s cocaine free and has no desire for cocaine. there are also lots of medications that actually are available now and good treatments particularly for opioid addiction and they're not used nearly as much as they could be to benefit the people who need them. >> i'm glad you brought that up, because before we
7:36 am
the us surgeon general did first ever report on addiction, you know, and said 21 million americans suffer from he had addiction. that's more than people suffering from cancer. and yet still people have a hard time seeing this as disease. but now with opioid crisis we have 91 americans dying dale from the opioid crisis. do you think that really is what has been a turning point in order for to us get a handle on this disease? >> it's definitely been a turning point in public awareness of addiction, and what it's all about. i was in huntington, west virginia, one of the places that's been hardest hit by the opioid crisis and i spoke with a former law enforcement official. he'd been the chief of police down there and now he's working on the opioid crisis and he said, you know, we're not going to arrest our way out of this problem. people need treatment. we need preventio
7:37 am
we really need to treat it as the disease that it is in the way we would treat diabetes or heart disease, making treatment available and without the stigma that's attached it to. >> fran, we sure appreciate your time this morning and more importantly your insight. it's the september edition of national geographic and i think we'd be hard pressed to find anybody that hasn't had addiction affect their live somehow, you know, be it personally or via someone you love. thank you for the work that you've done. >> thank you. >> all right. tuck, let's head on over to you. holly, cooler temps moved on in, and here to stay the next couple of days. daytime highs today only in the mid 60s, and wake up with cloud cover. i think we'll turn partly sunny this afternoon. let's get it to and show you the numbers. 57 now in washington and you can see that cool pool of air just off to our north and west. lots of 40s even 30s beckly this morning 33 degrees. so chilly. chicago looking at 38. big sprawling pool of cool air off to the north and west up across the great lakes, and little spokes of energy drop down into our region and we'll see anoth

8:31 am
>> 55 degrees. >> i feel like that's the most, um, changing in color of leaves that i've seen so far this season. maybe i just haven't been paying attention and need to do better job. >> no. they're saying the color is a little muted. is it because of the lack of rain? the lack of rain, tuck? >> that the trees -- yeah, not the bright -- the humidity. >> okay. so basically, it was so nice and warm we enjoyed that, but it means that the colors are not as vibrant. >> right. okay. >> as we thought but that's your live look outside on this wednesday morning. so when it comes to halloween, kids and canny go hand in hand, right and look, parents, we know you sneak -- you don't hike this one i'll take that one for me but can you hit the sweet spot when it comes to pick the best options? >> consumer reporter steve noviello is live in dallas, texas, with more. good morning to you, steve. >> reporter: good morning. it's all about helping your kids make better choices and making better choices for yourself when it comes to what you will hand out a
8:32 am
now, nobody is recommending recg told your kids to eat carrots instead of kit kats you'd change the channel. then everybody loses. so here were go as we throw through all of these keep in mind two thing. sugar couldn't at the present time and sugar exposure. so what is the better for you option when we talk about chocolate? light -- milk chocolate or dark chocolate? >> chocolate. >> give us a hard one, steve. dark chocolate of course. >> yeah, we're starting easy for you. dark chocolate is better. milk chocolate diluted with milk solids, cream and sugar. dark chocolate not only better choice because it has less sugar and less fat it contains more of the original company can he bean which has antioxidants and we love thing like that. okay little bit harder here. sweet tarts or pixie sticks, believe it or not one of these is better for you than the other? >> i say sweet tarts is better. >> i'll go sweet tarts because something about powder being inside a little packet that just doesn't seem right to me. [ laughter ] >> powder inside a straw never ends well for any
8:33 am
okay. but actually in this case it does. >> what? >> pixie stick is actually the better option for you here. here's why. sweet tarts are harder. they take longer to dissolve in your mouth chances you'll chew on them and get caught in the crevices and stick around. pixie sticks completely soft. dissolve faster and will likely wash away more completely with your mouth's own natural saliv. dumb dumbs or blow pops h-1 is better? dumb dumb. >> i'm going to go opposite on this one. use that -- blow pops because again, the name dumb dumb just sounds bad to me. [ laughter ] >> well, you would be a dumb dumb not to choose them, okay? [ laughter ] >> sorry. >> this is all about sugar exposure here. these will bathe your team in sugar way longer than the smaller dumb dumb plus of course they've got that sticky gum center in them which sits inside of candy which is never a good idea. finally for you, when it comes to sour,hi
8:34 am
for you option? jolly ranchers or sour patch kids. >> i'll go jolly ranchers watch do you say? >> i'm going to follow allison gone jolly ranchers but again this is about sour patch and kids. sounds bad. [ laughter ] >> all right. of course we should say any sour candy have extra acids in them which really wreak havoc on those pearly whites so best to stay i was if you can but if you had to choose the same sour sensation in jolly rancher is much better enjoyed is sour patch kid they're softer and of course not nearly as sticky as a jolly rancher which he is special physical your kids have braces or anything like that can really do damage. so knowing what we know, what's the best in show? >> the milk dark chocolate. >> the dark chocolate. >> there you go. >> good to see you guys. >> but i like the milk choc chocolate. can i do eight little bit in moderation? >> on halloween. >> everything in moderation. maybe milk chocolate followed by a good brushing of the team. >> i'll take that steve nov noviello. thk
